Went here a couple of times for free concerts outside. Very organized and well-run. Great place to bring a bottle of wine and enjoy some outdoor music. Definitely going back.

Planting Fields is a wonderful garden with greenhouses, paths to walk along, and a historic house. The house is really cool and you can walk all through it for $5. Great spot to take photos.

Found the history, and architecture of the home to be very interesting. The tour guide did a great job. And of course, the grounds themselves were just beautiful to wander through.
